The ro-ro ferry Super Shuttle Ferry 22 ran aground shortly after leaving the pier of the village of Barangay, Roxas, Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. The ferry’s engine broke down and drifted onto shallow water by strong winds. All 141 passengers were transferred to another vessel who were bound for Caticlan. Reports state there was some difficulty unloading heavy vehicles onboard to allow the 900 ton ferry to be pulled free.
